Lazy S Stables is a beautiful family operated 47 acre ranch established in Princeton, MN. We have a large 80 X 160 indoor arena that was recently built in 2007 that has lights.There are miles and miles of dirt road surrounding the Lazy S Stables for great trail riding as well. Lazy S Stables is a place that offers a top class quality inside and outside boarding/Arena riding for the horses and riders!
Here at Lazy S Stables, we thoroughly enjoy being involved in with the transition from a colt to a successful, confident, giving, safe, and respectful horse partner by using the Natural Horsemanship method. Laying of the foundation is the starting point of every successful horse that wants to work WITH you as opposed to FOR you.
It all begins in the round pen, where your partner-to-be learns the core principles of join up, respect, pressure and release, willingly giving up control to you of their physical, mental and emotional aspects and understanding what is being asked of them.
Aside from turning over control to you (feet, shoulders, hindquarters, mind, flexing, disengagement, so on and forth), they also learn the valuable calm down cue and how to handle their fear, making them safe horses despite of any situations that may arise months/years from this point for that horses are natural flight animals and cannot be taught to never be afraid but can be taught how to cope with it-- safely and quickly.
Once they are proven in all aspects of their given lessons, they are then saddled and reintegrated the very same principles taught to them from the ground. This makes the transition from ground to saddle welcomed to the horse, and the process is smooth and creates absolutely no trauma, and boosts your partner's work ethic and confidence to tackle anything you wish to take on with him, from relaxed trail rides to the show ring.
Your partner will come home to you as an understanding and willing partner who is an absolute delight to ride. With this in mind, we also encourage you to attend however many sessions as you'd like and to ask us for assistance for any reason at any day- We are not here just for your partner, we are also here for YOU!
